For cash strapped individuals nothing can be better than a budget phone coming without an expensive carrier contract. Kyocera has recently launched two affordable handsets – Kyocera Laylo and Kyocera Domino. Both the handsets will be launched by MetroPCS, which is a favorite carrier for people who dislike the expensive signed contracts.
The red colored Laylo is perhaps the appropriate cell phone for women. Hidden in its slider body is a vanity mirror. You can’t expect any outstanding technical feature from a low end cell phone. Nonetheless, Kyocera has managed to incorporate several essential attributes in this affordable handset. It sports a 2.2 inches high-resolution display. The keypad of the handset is large with evenly spaced keys, offering tactile feedback while typing. Kyocera Laylo flaunts a 1.3 megapixel camera with basic camera features. This Kyocera handset will also come with WAP 2.0 browser, Bluetooth, speakerphone with dedicated function keys and basic productivity tools such as calculator, tip calculator, alarm and stopwatch.
Kyocera Laylo will run on the Brew 3.1.5 platform. Several MetroPCS services will be accessible with this cell phone. With myMetro, users can manage their MetroPCS account, Mobile IM could be used for instant messaging, MetroBackup will save contact information and Pocket Express service will deliver news and related information on the Laylo handset. Prominent messaging formats will be supported by this Kyocera handset. Kyocera Laylo will carry a $100 price tag.
The red colored candybar Domino is a basic cell phone, running on the Brew 3.1.5 platform. It has a 1.8 inches display and a large keypad. The fonts on the keys are large and legible. Kyocera Domino will be packed with stereo Bluetooth. Web browsing will be supported by the WAP 2.0 browser. You can use this Kyocera handset for exchanging text and multimedia messages.
MetroPCS users can access Mobile IM service of the carrier for instant messaging. Users can use the [email protected] service for accessing emails on the Kyocera Domino handset. Standard productive tools such as alarm, calculator, stopwatch and scheduler are integrated in the handset. You can also avail prominent MetroPCS services with this phone. To reduce paper usage, a digital user guide is preinstalled in the handset. Kyocera Domino will be available from MetroPCS for $70.
